I don’t have my hopes set too high. I had three seeds germinate, one died from neglect, I planted one in the backyard and this one. The one in the ground is alive but not thriving by any means.From what I have heard they will only bloom when they’re not being constantly pruned and they grow so fast. There‘s a few large landscape trees in my neighborhood. They’re leggy and only attractive when blooming.Jacaranda is the most difficult tree I ever attempted to bonsai. I failed.
I don't think they're good for bonsai material at all. The only reasons I'm keeping mine around is because it was a gift and I can keep it outside all year.I started one about the same time as yours, its barely 1/4 the size, just not enough humidity and heat up north. It will hold on through winter but I fear a 20 year process to get anything close to work with. Is it worth selling off somewhere? Its in decent health and backbudding some, I just hate to throw it away.
I think they can make good bonsai. It just might be since they are not that common, there are not too many good examples to look to for inspiration.I don't think they're good for bonsai material at all.

Yeah, making everybody's point that they are huge and I'm betting this guy is Indonesian and right on the equator. He's probably got a Poinciana, too. Nothing short of magnificent.
That is not jacaranda. I’ve seen jacaranda bloom in the landscape and that’s not even close.
